Opened in 2020, Nice Jones Distillery is Manhattan’s first and solely authorized distillery since Prohibition. Being so new, they aren’t but bottling their very own whiskey. Their merchandise are at the moment distilled, aged, and bottled at Black Dirt distillery in upstate New York. In the present day we can be making an attempt three of their whiskeys, however solely the usual bourbon is extensively obtainable. The 4 Grain and the Rye are distillery exclusives.

Nice Jones Straight Bourbon Whiskey – This four-year-old whiskey has a mashbill of corn, malted barley, and rye. The nostril is mushy, with engaging notes of brown sugar and vanilla in addition to a contact of black pepper. On the palate, the rye pepper notes are extra pronounced and supply a pleasant steadiness to the brown sugar and vanilla notes. The whiskey isn’t overly complicated and tastes a bit younger with a reasonably quick end, but it surely drinks nicely, significantly for its worth level. I might like to see the way it tastes with a bit extra time in cask. 86 proof. B / $40

Nice Jones 4 Grain Straight Bourbon – Made with corn, malted barley, rye, and wheat all grown within the state of New York, this whiskey has been aged for 4 years. The nostril is kind of pretty and provides caramel, corn-heavy sweetness, and cereal notes, together with a little bit of nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. The palate is comparable. Caramel and baking spices come first, together with a little bit of peppery rye. Gentle sweetness balances the spice properly, and though it is a younger whiskey, it drinks a bit older. The one downside is the end, which could possibly be longer, however it is a stable sipper. It really works nicely by itself and can be an amazing base for an Previous Usual or a Manhattan. 90 proof. B+ / $60

Nice Jones Rye Whiskey – This whiskey is 100% rye, aged a minimal of 4 years. The nostril exhibits the mashbill, beginning with a spicy kick adopted by vanilla and dried apricots. The palate opens with caramel, extra dried apricot, and a lightweight sweetness adopted rapidly by peppery spice notes which can be pronounced, however not excessive. There’s steadiness right here, with a end that’s medium in size. It is a good sipping rye at an excellent worth level and would serve brilliantly in cocktails. 90 proof. B+ / $40
